Reading percent from makecab console

3 posts in this topic

Hi,

I'm trying to read percentage from console window of makecab for updating my progress bar, but I'm having problems with it. I'm using following code but it wont work. I can get text return from console but I can't extract percentage numbers.

#include <Constants.au3>
$progressbar2 = ProgressOn("Test", "Please wait")
$runcheck=Run(""""&@SystemDir&"\makecab.exe"&""""&" /f ""D:\offxp\OFFICE1.ddf""", "D:\offxp", "", $STDOUT_CHILD)
While ProcessExists($runcheck)
        $readtextfromconsole = StdoutRead($runcheck)
        If (StringRegExp($readtextfromconsole, "%", 0)=1) And Not ($readtextfromconsole="")  Then
        $percentis = StringMid($readtextfromconsole, 1, 4)
        ProgressSet($progressbar2, Round($percentis))
MsgBox(0, $percentis, $readtextfromconsole);I check it with this and it never returns what I want
    EndIf
    Sleep(10)
WEnd

Can somebody help me with this? Here is a screen shot of console window:

Cheers :D

StringMid() returns at string, not surprisingly. Convert it to a number before using it:
$percentis = Number(StringMid($readtextfromconsole, 1, 4))
